Some completely newbie questions

Postby plm » Thu Dec 16, 2004 9:38 pm

Sorry if i am stupid now, but i am competely new to this...

I'm using some kind of built-in ftp thing on winXP.
(maybe IE or something, im not sure...)

I log in in at ftp://mandrake.polarhome.com, using my username (plm) and password. Works fine (atleast i think). Then i see three folders:

private
public_html
tmp

What are those folders?
And should i log out of ftp://mandrake.polarhome.com
when im finished?

And finally, Thank you VERY much for this thing!!!

You should put your page's files inside the public_html folder.

In private folder you can put files you don't want others to see (no web access) and tmp, is a temp folder, use it as you wish.

And yes it would be good to logout after finish using the server.
